  6. The E Myth
    Every single person starting a business needs to read this immediately. It defines the stages of a company between infancy and maturity and explains the reasons why most businesses don’t make it past the first 5 years. Here’s a Cliff’s notes style video review I did about the E myth.

  13. Think and Grow Rich
    This gem was originally published in 1937. The caption on the back cover speaks for itself: “There have been millionaires, and indeed, billionaires, who have made their fortunes as a result of reading this success classic than any other book ever printed.”

  14. The 4 Hour Workweek
